Awesome Jimmy Page Solos

Recommended Posts

I can't find it right now,but the solo on Stairway To Heaven from the DVD at Earls Court is mind-blowing.

Also the version of STH from the o2 was great.

Sweet.

So where does one get the full version of the Earls Court '75 vid?

That's a good question! Have no idea, but it would be nice if Page decided to release on DVD the complete Earls Court concert one day!

The Supershow Dazed is one of my favorites, becuse it's so completely manic and off the wall. Also, the recording itself is distorted which gives it kind of an Iggy Raw Power garage-punk vibe.

I love Jimmy Page as much as anyone but we must all keep in mind these kind of things also:

Heartbreaker

First time I saw that, it broke my heart. :(

Thankfully, right after that, I watched a Page and Plant video of Jimmy doing the Heartbreaker solo, which cheered me up.

This must be a fake. I can't believe it, he would never play so horrible.

Nope. Some people think that too, but it's all real. Take a look at the whole performance: Heartbreaker/Whole Lotta Love.

They were on six hours late, and he was probably drunk and tired as all hell (not a good combination). If this were anybody else, their career would've been destroyed immediately. Thankfully, he's Jimmy Page, so nobody gave a shit. Here them cheering? Or maybe they were just being nice....

Good times, bad times. Those are the bad times.

Was that their whole performance - they only did 2 songs? EDIT: never mind, here's them doing Stairway: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KfF14Vh-0Sw...feature=related

I hadn't seen this since 1988, so thank you for the link. I didn't remember the music as being bad, but then I was drunk as well ...

Please forgive me for having steered the thread in this direction. Here's Achilles Last Stand from Knebworth. A worthy performance if there ever was one:

Sometimes, you eat the bear, and sometimes the bear eats you.

We can't expect Pagey to be God ALL the time can we?

I still love him.

To be honest, solos like those are part of the reason I love Jimmy Page. I think his sloppiness gives him his style, and is part of what makes him unique.

Think about it this way, we are talking about a guy who would rather play something sketchy, than completely copy himself night after night. I applaud him, even when he falls.

I rember reading an interview with him back around the time the DVD came out in 03 and he had been considering releasing a full Earl's Court dvd but decided against it. Mainly because most of the footage he has from those shows are closeups and he felt it would be tough to release a complete sets' worth of material because of this.
